Activision Blizzard Removes Games From GeForce Now

Nvidia’s GeForce Now streaming service exited beta last week with hundreds of games, but users will find some of the titles they may have been playing have suddenly been removed. Activision Blizzard abruptly removed all of its games (like Overwatch and World of Warcraft) from the service yesterday with no real explanation.

The news comes from a Nvidia representative in GeForce Now’s official forum. The representative said wrote, “Per their request, please be advised Activision Blizzard games will be removed from the service. While unfortunate, we hope to work together with Activision Blizzard to reenable these games and more in the future.”

In the same post, Nvidia says that over 1,500 games are being on-boarded and will be added to the service in the future. If you purchased the Activision Blizzard games, you can still play them, just not through GeForce Now.

This shift away from GeForce Now comes on the heels of Activision Blizzard inking a deal with Google to exclusively stream esports matches for Overwatch League and Call of Duty League. We’ve reached out to Activision Blizzard for a statement on GeForce Now.
